Earle Charles’ career over the past five decades was specifically in leadership in the community as well as in business. He spent the past two decades working in the Health Care business vertical as Chief Information Officer as well as Chief Operations Officer for both Kedren Health and Clare|Matrix in Los Angeles and Santa Monica respectively.
In both firms Earle’s responsibilities were voluminous but minimally included managing customer and vendor relationships; developing and implementing business strategy; aligning information technology with business strategy; assuring business revenues streams and the like.
Prior to Kedren and C|M, Earle held several senior executive operational positions such as President and CEO of Bauerer International Inc.; Senior Vice President and General Manager of Unicom Systems International; Executive Vice President and co-owner of The Paragon Collection, Ltd.; Executive Director of The Valley Youth Conference; President of the North Valley Athletic Club; President of California Caribbean Chamber of Commerce; Global Chief Operations Officer for DELTTA Group Holdings, among others.
In addition to his work at Kedren and Clare Matrix, Earle is a member of the faculty at California Lutheran University where he serves as a Professor of Practice teaching Graduate and post-Graduate students’ courses in the Healthcare Ecosystem; Aligning Information Technology with Business Strategy as well as Information Technology Management.
At California Lutheran University, Dr. Charles is also the Director of Graduate Programs in Information Technology.
Earle’s most cherished formal education experience was his journey towards earning an Executive MBA from the Peter Drucker School of Management of the Claremont Graduate University. The classes he took with Peter Drucker himself were beyond compare… however the whole EMBA experience of being in classes with senior executives from other companies, problem solving together was immeasurable.
